Family trips and gatherings can bring to the surface the age-old issue of sibling rivalry. For children and adults alike, sibling rivalry can be easily triggered, stressful and difficult to resolve.
How children relate to each other in a family can cause considerable distress to their parents, particularly when the interaction consists of seemingly constant fighting, tears, drama, name-calling and tale telling. This is often highlighted in school holidays as parents juggle siblings of different ages with opposite interests and personalities. According to Dr Kimberley O’Brien, one of Australia’s leading child psychologists, “Family holidays are no fun for parents when supervising siblings, preventing squabbles and suggesting solutions is a full-time job”.
Addressing a topic that impacts most families, Dr O’Brien uses Siblings! as a tool to help resolve rivalry. According to Dr O’Brien, “It uses humour to find leverage between brothers and sisters. It’s most effective with children aged 4 to 10 years and works best as a bedtime story to introduce the concept of different perspectives”.
Siblings! is published in Australia by Quirky Kid
